and movie producer Joel Silver will team up again, to work
on an untitled movie, based on a 1931 German crime thriller.
Joel Silver, who produced the action films "Exit Wounds"
and "Romeo Must Die," has nothing but love for
DMX."I love working with him, He's a real magical guy,"
Joel Silver commented. "He has a great heart and he has
great talent and somebody real special, and I'd like to
work with him as long as I can."
film is the first of the multipicture deal that Warner Brothers
signed with DMX earlier this year. The film is slated to
go into production this fall. The original was directed
by Fritz Lang, and centered around a child murderer who
is loose in Berlin. Despite extensive police efforts to
capture the murderer, he eludes police. The crackdown in
the city makes in hard for organized crime figures to operate,
so they too start looking for the child murderer.
The film was
remade once before, in 1951 by director Joseph Losey. In
the new version of the film, it has been confirmed that
DMX will play a crime boss that helps catch the murderer.
No one has been signed to play the murderer, but sources
close to the studio say they are hoping to snag Vin Diesel
(Saving Private Ryan, The Fast And The Furious).
